    This dress is beautiful and the print is gorgeous. The only reason it got 4 stars is because the top band that holds the dress up is too loose. It is a nice thick, elasticated band but it is sewn too big and I spent the night tugging up the dress, especially in the back where it had slipped down to reveal my bra. It is an easy fix for my tailor but will cost extra. I bought the 6L (I am 5'9") and 135lbs. and it is perfect, just covering the tops of my feet. The strapless bra I wear with it is a 32DD.

        I absolutely love the pattern and fabric of this dress. However, the bust did not flatter me...made my chest into a sausage shape. :P The size 2 fit me correctly, it just didn't look good, even when I tried it with a strapless bra.

          I wasn't sure if this print would look good on me but it is very flattering. I get a lot of compliments on it. Super comfortable and easy to wash and dry. Love this dress and I'm definitely getting my moneys worth with all the times I've worn it so far.

            I did order this in my normal size US10 and exchanged for US8. It worked out very nicely. It does stretch out a bit after a day of wear, so I did appreciate the tie around the neck. It is very comfortable, with a nice soft hand to the fabric. I love the colors and print of this dress. I would get this in another print if it were available. It is nice alone or can be dressed up a bit with a cropped cardigan. I've worn it with the favorite cropped cardigan in navy. I agree that a cotton strapless bra will work better than the nylon one I wore. For the beach it would not be an issue and will work perfectly over a bikini. I hope this becomes a favorite and there are more in the future.

              Beautiful dress. Comfortable and stylish. Looks fantastic with a statement necklace or dangly earrings. I wore it out and have also just worn it around the house because it is comfy and easy to throw on.

                First the raves, this dress is BEAUTIFUL and I love it. The print is different and very classy and the fabric is a lovely thick quality cotton. The only problem is this dress does run large. I usually fall somewhere between a 10 and 12, 5'6", apple shape with extra weight in my tummy. I purchased the smaller of my size range after reading other reviews and it did not work - gave me the dreaded maternity look. I then tried an 8 and it is PERFECT! So, at least for me, sizing down 1 or even 2 sizes made the dress fall beautifully and look its best.

                This dress caught my eye immediately, and I purchased my regular size. It was too long for my height (expected that), but surprisingly, it was also too big in the bust and hip. The elastic at the top isn't really snug, and even with the halter string, I'm not sure that it would stay up well. I've re-ordered in a smaller size, and hope that it will work out. The pattern is gorgeous, and the fabric has great drape, is lightweight, and can easily go from day to night. I would recommend it, but size down.

                  I love this dress! The fabric is unique and pattern feels luxe.

                  I did however find that this dress runs large (which I secretly liked:):) )

                  I ordered a 12 Long, my regular size. It was too large around the mid section, but the length was perfect (I am 5'10)

                  I just sent it back in exchange for a 10 and am really excited to have it in my wardrobe.

                    At first I thought this dress was only for the beach trip. But apparently it works just as well with a cardigan for Sunday brunches, or sitting on the back porch, or cleaning house. The elegant shape leaves you feeling like a queen, even when washing up the dinner dishes. And the material is so durable, soft and comfortable, I'm pretty sure I could sleep in it and run to the market the next morning, and none would be the wiser. The only draw back is the stunning print, which is quite eye catching and makes it unforgettable.
                    Thus it cannot be worn all over town, every day. Perhaps I just need another...

                      I couldn't wait to try this dress. I'm typically a 6 in Boden (5'5", 120 lbs, 32D), but they were out of my size so I went down to a 4, which wound up being the perfect size for me. There is no extra elastic or ruching along the bodice, but it seems like it will stay up well with a strapless bra that is more of a cotton-like fabric as opposed to some of the slicker fabrics like satin. Length finished right at my ankle bone.
